Description

Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship with Father Gregory Boyle
March 27, 2019 6pm, USU Ballroom

Father Gregory “G-Dog” Boyle is the founder and director of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, the largest gang-intervention, and re-entry program in the world. He will speak about his new book, Los Angeles Times-
Bestseller Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship. His book represents a moving example of unconditional love in difficult times as he shares what three decades of working with gang-involved men and women in Los Angeles has taught him about faith, compassion, and the enduring power of kinship.

Father Boyle is a Jesuit priest who served as pastor of Dolores Mission Church, then the poorest Catholic parish in Los Angeles that also had the highest concentration of gang activity in the city. During the 90s, he witnessed the devastating impact of gang violence on his community, Boyle Heights. In the face of law enforcement tactics and criminal justice policies of suppression and mass incarceration as the means to end gang violence, Father Boyle, his parish and community members adopted what was a radical approach at the time: treat gang
members as human beings. A mantra that fuels Homeboy Industries in everyday life.

Boyle has received the California Peace Prize and has been inducted into the California Hall of Fame.
In 2014, the White House named Father Boyle a Champion of Change. He received the University
of Notre Dame’s 2017 Laetare Medal, the oldest honor given to American Catholics.
